Put the pitchforks away.
The lunacy that Russia caused Donald Trump to win in 2016 is being matched now by the lunacy that illegal votes helped Joe Biden win the presidency in 2020.
Trump legally and fairly won in 2016.
Biden legally and fairly won in 2020. (Yes, I’m stating he won; there’s no way Trump is going to make up the difference in at least two of the states in which he trails. He’s lost. Joe Biden will be the next president of the United States.)
Toss away your conspiracy theories.
Be an adult.
Accept victory with humility and defeat with grace.
And for those of you who want to argue 2016 all over again, please spare me the tired case that Russia “influenced” the outcome four years ago.
For every disinformation campaign you wish to identify, I can come up with rally after rally in which the Obamas made an appearance. We’re done talking about 2016.
The voters in 2016 made their choice. What has happened since then cannot be changed.
The voters in 2020 have made theirs. What will happen as a result of a Biden presidency is still be to determined.
The victory then and the victory now is legitimate.
Let’s move on and address the problems that need attention in this country.
